Join Our Team

Growing Companies. Building Careers.

At The Bowdoin Group, we aim to do two simple things: help to grow companies and build careers. Our people are our best asset, and to be on the Bowdoin team means you will be surrounded by passionate, hard-working, and motivated individuals.

We just have one rule: Do The Right Thing. We support each other, deliver exceptional results, and constantly strive for excellence.

In return, our flexible work options allow you to be the best inside and outside of the office. Our generous vacation policy allows you to take the time to do what you love. Our volunteer opportunities allow you to give back to the causes you care about. And there is so much more that sets us apart from other executive search firms in the space: we strive for excellence across everything we do.

 We care about our clients, candidates, and each other.

Work with smart, driven people who want to win with integrity. We collaborate, trust each other, take pride in our high level of service, and always choose the best option, even if it isn’t the easiest.


Make an impact from day one.

Everyone is a highly valued member of the team at Bowdoin. Come grow with us in a dynamic culture of learning and development. You want to make a difference for people and businesses, and we enable you to do just that. Don’t just work with influencers, get a seat at the table. We’re constantly growing, and we want you to be a part of it.

This isn’t your typical day in the office.

We’re always moving. Whether you’re on your way to a client meeting or you’re joining the company at a Red Sox game, you’ll never be bored. Your day will fly by as you meet high expectations, and you’ll have fun along the way. But we do more than just have fun; with 20 hours of paid volunteering each year, we take the time to give back.

Take charge of your career.

You’re a professional that delivers on the expectations set for you, and you’re committed to getting the job done. You’re looking to advance your career, and want to be in an environment that facilitates your growth and rewards your success. Our benefits are for those who strive for the best in and out of the office.
